failed. back to square one. 900 1992

hi Spook,

I don't think the plastic fan can be removed from the motor without destroying it. Now that I have looked at it I think it was stuck onto the end of the motor during assembly with the idea that these things are not repairable. Knowing what I know now I might have tried to grind the end of the attaching plastic'capsule' to see if there would be any way of moving it.

I might have another look inside to see if the magnet broke loose again. I can't fix the motor but it would be good to know if the loose magnet was at fault.

I don't know why I did not use brake cleaner. I have some in the shop.

I will get back to you when I have installed the new motor.
